It was a nicely made, high quality dress.

I rented this for a work function and wasn't going for the "wow" factor but I did feel it was quite drab once I received it. The material is very thick and it attracts everything like cat hair, loose threads, fibers- everything clings to it. Oddly it feels almost like a light flannel and I wasn't expecting a sleeveless dress to feel this "wintery". Also, the dress was enormous. I should have gotten the size 0. The size 0 wasn't available and usually for work events I don't mind the fit being more conservative not not clingy, so I thought the two would he just fine. But it was so big and baggy in the waist that I had to belt it. I wore the dress because it's what I had planned to wear, but it was certainly a very forgettable, boring dress that fits like a cardboard box. I would not rent this one again.

Cool dress! Perfect for fall and winter.

Nice thick material. Very comfortable to wear. I like the cool/edgy look of it.

Lightweight and flowing, perfect for long work days

Wore this for a long work day, felt super comfortable and confident all day. Can layer underneath for colder weather, great wool weight for mild fall weather. Will def rent this again.

Great work to dinner dress

The dress runs large, I wore an 8 and I normally wear a 10. The cut is very comfortable and the look is very stylish. The fabric is a wool blend and if you are sensitive to that type of fabric this might not work for you. I received many compliment at work. I also wore it after work to a dinner date with my husband and he loved it. The compliments surprised me because the dress is so easy, but you look like you spent a lot of time on your outfit.

All the compliments I received, a true boost for ones self esteem.

Even though it was a bit big it was comfortable to wear in a work environment and with a few accessories changed worked for dinner out as well. I got so many amazing comments on the dress and the style!!! Love!!!

My first rental after nearly 6 months on the UNLIMITED wait list. Worth the wait!

The fit and the fabric were on point. It was perfect for work and received unsolicited compliments throughout the day. I would've never bought this dress on my own but RTR gives you the chance to go outside of your norm...I love it!

Beyond chic for the office!

This dress is beyond unique -- totally understated but when you look at all the details it really pops. I'm definitely going to get this dress again through unlimited, but will definitely size down when I do. The dress is cut really big, which isn't a huge deal given the silhouette, but it gapped a little under my arms. Because I really wanted to wear the dress anyway, I belted it and gathered the extra material in the back. The top layer covered the belt, and the bunch in the back looked like it was supposed to be there. As a result, it was a little long, but looked good with a pair of heels. I wore a white tuxedo shirt underneath and loved it!

Looks way better on you than on the hanger

This dress doesn't look like much on the hanger but it is pretty cute on. As other reviewers said, this runs large, but you can't really tell because of the cut. The arm holes seem about right, so I would be hesitant about getting 2 sizes down, but a size 4 probably would have been perfect.

Believe the hype! Flattering. Tailored. Modern. Chic.

As an illustrator drawing live at big events in large-format this dress was perfect. It had pockets for my markers and was long enough to make me feel comfortable in 360°--bending down, stretching tall, (doing my job, looking great).

Comfy and warm for winter

I wore this dress to work, with dinner after, during the coldest part of NYC winter. The weight of the fabric and length of the skirt kept me warm. The dress is a little baggy on top, and has plenty of extra room for hips, so I would rent a smaller size next time. I'm 5'11" so the amount of fabric on the skirt didn't weigh me down, but it could be too long/bulky on a smaller frame.

Really great dress - just wish I was taller.

Definitely size down per the other reviews. Normally I am a 4 and I got a 2 - and it fit well. It is on the longer side so I did use a belt to give it better shape (hidden under the top). With high heeled booties it was perfect for work and my day full of client meetings. Would rent again.

The dress does run a little large, but having put on a few pounds, I found that welcome! Great dress. You can dress it up and down. I received many compliments from my coworkers.

Work party perfection

I rented this for a work event in San Francisco and it was perfect! I really loved this dress. It is kinda large and almost bag-like. I'm always a size 2 and almost wished I had the 0 but I think maybe it just fits that way. I helped cinch it around the waist with a belt under the front flap to give it a little more shape. If you are between sizes probably go down. It's a lot of material also so it's warming although sleeveless. It was perfect for a 62 degree day with no jacket over it. I wore it with denim stiletto mules that matched perfectly. I got compliments on it! I felt very fashion forward but still very professional. I loved the pockets and loved putting my hands in them. We went dancing later and the skirt was fun to pick up and dance with. I wish I owned this dress. I live in South Beach and probably would get a ton of use from it there but it's kinda a classic, chic, fashionable statement piece that's subtle. I would think you'd want to be at least 5'5 / 5'6 though to wear this dress without wanting to get it tailored.... But fun dress!! Could wear to work or a fashionable (not formal) event.

A dress for fall

This dress is a heavier fabric and is definitely for fall/winter. It also runs a bit large. I wish it were slightly more fitted. The bold stripes and shape of the dress is larger so a slimmer fit would be better. Not for me so am returning it without wearing it.

Great dress, I'm just not grown up enough for it...

If I worked in fashion or art this would be fab, but for my casual media office it felt like too much of a 'fashion' piece. I did love it though! And the fit was great

Conservative but edgy.

Classic colors and a loose fit make this dress perfect for work or a conservative event. But the cut and the appearance of two pieces give it a trendy, edge. I received tons of compliments and wish I could've kept the dress.

For sure order one size down!

Beautiful fabric and colors. Flowey skirt and nice details. Runs really big. I would order this again but probably 2 sizes down. And I never size down (that's why I didn't listen to all the reviews telling me to size down!). I like things loose. I wore this with a shirt underneath as it was cold outside and the arm holes were too big in my usual size!

Great work dress!

Very classy look. Definitely runs large. I ordered two sizes down and it looked great. It was still a little loose in the waist but just right in the arm pits so I believe that's how the dress is supposed to hang on your body.

Conservative with an edge

This dress is why I love RTR Unlimited. I would never buy this dress but it was really fun to try. Be careful if you're short - I'm 5'10 and the dress hit lower calf. It definitely runs bigger than other Tibi I've worn. Very comfortable and interesting back.

Compliments from strangers!

I wore this to the airport and to a work meeting. I received compliments from complete strangers and felt absolutely amazing. It was warm enough for 40 degree weather with a jacket and booties. I loved the flow and felt professional. Still felt sexy even though it is not revealing.

Runs large

The colors are a bit more muted than pictured but I did not have a problem with that. The size however runs extremely large, go down at least a size or two to avoid swimming in it.

Run really large heads up

This runs very large I always get a size 6 in brands and they always fit. I read the reviews and got a size 4 in this and I was still swimming in it. I love the idea of the dress but between it being still to large and long it didn't work on my 5'4" body. So I sent it back. If you tall go for it.

Great fall dress.

I'm normally a size 4-6 but reading the reviews I got the smaller size and it fit well. My favorite part of the dress was the back and the way it was cut. The skirt was feminine and full. I wore it with navy pumps. Lots of compliments.

Just ok

I rented this with my first unlimited order. I sized down as recommended from a 10 to an 8, but the dress was still a bit too large. After reading other reviews I hid a belt under the top to help with the sizing. The dress is well made and a good weight for fall. I may rent again, but would try the 6.

Professional and feminine

True to size - very draped fit, I can see why people say it ran big but I think it's just the way that it fits which is so beautiful - if I had sized down, the chest would have been to tight but that's just me!

Underrated!

I received so many compliments on this piece! It definitely runs large so I sized down to a 2 and it fit great. Very comfy. The way this garment falls is just devine. The layered vest-like back is a surprise that really makes this a statement piece! All day at work I stunned with every asking "is that a dress?" Very classic. I paired with a thin long sleeve white shirt. Great if you want to hide problem areas as well! Definitely looks better in person!

Curious affinity for this dress

The dress is different. I got about 3 compliments on it in 10 minutes after walking into work. I like it very much but its big and is not figure flattering. That said it is realy comfortable and chic in a 'get thee to a nunnery' kind of way. Good work dress. Like the pockets.

Comfortable and stripes!

Love the stripes on this. Definitely runs large, size down at least one size. Really comfortable. Skirt is kind of full so it may not be flattering on pear shapes.
